Really tasty dish. Has all the right ingredients for bold flavor yet I'm a tough critic when it comes to spicy. I'm sure I used the wrong chili sauce, but Thai Sweet red chili sauce was all the store had in the asian section. So I added about 3 T of chili paste and a few heavy dashes of red pepper flakes and it was perfect. Because my husband says I love salt more than the avg person, I used low sodium soy sauce and reduced to 3T (mistake) and low sodium chicken broth. Next time I'll use 5 T low sod. soy sauce, and 1/2 C broth, since sauce wasn't as thick or salty as I'd like. I used 1/2 lb ground pork, and left out the shrimp. It was a satisfying portion of meat I thought. I would have used tofu but it was passed it's best buy date(darn). I also thought it could have been better with a crunch to it. I might try a bell pepper or cashews next time. I served it over Maifun rice sticks but next time I'm going with sticky rice. I love anything spicy and eggplant is my new favorite veggie, I'm anxious to make this again.
